* The sprawling cast of ''{{Soap}}'' required ''three'' cast pictures in the opening credits -- the Tates, the Campbells, and all of them together. This had to be redone more than once because of cast changes, resulting in different gags: first a fight breaks out among the characters, then another version had the ceiling collapse on them as they stiffly pose, then a return to the fight idea.

* ''{{Skins}}'' starting in series two has the cast playing around and having fun. Of course, so they won't be like those American teen shows they add the sex, drugs, drinking, and drama so it would be more in character for them.

* The original ''BeverlyHills90210'' began doing this at the top of its opening credits starting with the second season, ganging its cast in front of a photo-shoot-style white background, laughing with each other and smiling for the camera. (Of course, this being Beverly Hills, it's not too hard to believe that bunches of beautiful teenagers are doing photo shoots together every day of the week.) They carried the trope forward for the rest of its ten-season run, and given the [[RevolvingDoorCasting constant cast changes]] it had to be reshot on a regular basis, seeming less and less spontaneous each time, until it was finally rammed into the ground with the many-times mutated cast milling around looking like they were just hanging out waiting for the series to finally die.
* The sister show of ''BeverlyHills90210'', ''MelrosePlace'', had one of these at the very earliest stages (i.e., pre-Heather Locklear), with the huge, unwieldy cast marching down the eponymous street arm in arm in an intimidating phalanx of put-on camaraderie. The shot appeared both at the start of the credits and at the end, too, just to remind you that you really did see something that false in the opening titles. The less-noticeable but possibly more bizarre flashes shown of all ''eight'' cast members huddled around the far half of a pool table, ''Last Supper''-style with some combination of them attempting to somehow play in those cramped conditions is another example.
* Similarly, the opening credits of ''{{Popular}}'' featured the entire main cast at a photoshoot together, despite the premise of the show being that the two main groups of characters hated each other, and the unpopular, brunette clique weren't exactly the photoshoot types. Bonus points for including the two 'parent' characters who, as the show went on, were rarely seen outside of the opening sequence.

* ''Series/FullHouse'' gives everyone their own introduction shot. But by the end of the credits, they're all goofing around and having dinner (seasons 1 and 2), a cookout in the backyard (seasons 3), or a picnic (season 4 through the end of series).

* ''BluePeter'' tried this in the late 90s... only for Richard Bacon to be suddenly sacked over a drug scandal, requiring a hasty rethink.

* ''Series/ThreesCompany'' showed the entire cast spending the afternoon together. Even though there is no explainable reason why the three main characters, plus Larry, plus their land lord and his wife, plus the creepy lady who Jack hates would all be hanging out with each other.
